Found this apt. On Holiday Lettings, on Tripadvisor. All emails to Antonio were promptly answered.
When we arrived (via Yellowfish- excellent prompt services,that cost 60 euros return from airport in Faro) Veronika was onsite at the apartment complex and let us in. A great thing about this place is that it is secure-has locked entry way (and Portugal itself felt very safe). She spent some time with us, gave us maps, information re shopping, supermarket, places to eat. She was a wealth of information.
She turned out to be the sweetest person you could wish to meet. The 4 of us loved her (while there I celebrated a b-day and she and Ruben (co-owner) bought over portugese treats). She was just awesome.
The apt. Looked exactly like it does in the pictures. It had full fridge, microwave, toaster, coffeepot, kettle, stovetop, toasteroven, immersion blender, everything you needed to prepare meals.Any requests we had, Veronika did her best to fulfill.There is no issue with clean towels (bring own facecloths- no hotel we stayed in Europe offered them) or sheets. There was a washer for doing laundry shared with other guests which was great. The bedrooms-The master suite had 2 single beds, a washroom with a shower, a safe, plenty of storage, a window and a balcony. The second room had the double bed, lots storage, and the washroom was just outside-bath and shower. These were located upstairs. Downstairs there was a powder room. A nice size dining/living room. This apt. Is not air-conditioned but all the windows open. Outside there was a nice patio, beautiful for evening meals with hot pink flowers hanging overhead, drinking Portugese wines that cost from 1.75 euros to 5 euros, ports from 5-18 euros and exellcent liquors. Gotta love it! Didn't hit one that wasn't great. There is a pool, nice size, unheated with plenty of chairs.This apt. Has a couple sets of stairs to the pool but this was not an issue for us.

We could walk to the supermarkets Lidl,Aldo, Pino Doce and Continel (Modela) and these all had liquor. They were all within 7-12 minutes. Close yo Lidl there is a Fishermans market with great supply of fresh fish. All the locals shop here.We had 4 very large salmon steaks plus 4 small mackeral for 24 euros. Best salmon I ate in years.
The hub of activity is in "Olde Town" which was 7-10 minute walk. Lots to do there-eat, drink, shop,or go to the beach. They have entertainment all day and night. We enjoyed a couple meals here.
There are buses everywhere and we used the bus and the train. Theres a hop on/off and a bus into Olde Town. This apt. Has an excellent location and we walked everywhere except to the
train station about 6 km away.
Overall, I think this apartment was excellent value for your $ and the location was simply the best. The owner lives onsite so it feels very secure and safe.The family, Antonio, Veronika, and Ruben were excellent to deal with and I would stay there again. Highly recommend to families and couples who have no issues with stairs. Many many thanks to Veronika. You are the best!

“Fantastic family holiday”

My partner and I decided to take our 14 month old daughter on her first holiday and this was the best place we could have chosen!
The apartment was very spacious with ample room for us all and our daughters toys. The apartment is very conveniently located. Just a short walk to not 1 but 3 supermarkets! Located at the top of old town with pretty views it was easy for us to explore the delights of Albufera while pushing a buggy.
The facilities in the apartment are great with a good range of English TV channels, a lovely private seated area outside and great balcony for sunbathing while our daughter napped. The swimming pool is lovely and for the most part we had it to ourselves.
The hosts are fantastic and so friendly with Veronika going the extra mile to make us welcome. She decorated the wall above the cot to help make our daughter welcome which was so sweet. We were given beach towels (as well as the towels for the apartment) which is a great added extra. She also gave us umbrellas to take to the beach which made the very hot sun bearable for us all.
The area its self is lovely and all of the people we met were very lovely and welcoming to Portugal. We didn't venture to the new town deciding to stay in the laid back old town. We had some lovely meals out and would highly recommend Urban Pizza and El Rancho. Both have a great menu and a reasonable priced. At the latter you must try the hot stone steak - amazing!
We loved the holiday and would recommend the location and apartments to everyone of all ages.
